Venting storage compartments???

Can someone tell me why the grate that is on the stairs leading into the bedroom is open to the front bay? All the heat and AC is going down into the front storage compartment. Is there reason for this? There is also open vents under the couch that heat and cool the compartment in the rear. Why??? I do not need to heat or cool my storage compartments and if we are somewhere where it gets really cold the furnace puts off a lot of heat inside the compartment that would keep my tanks warm. Any thoughts please.

It depends on where your furnaces pull return air from.

They require 35 to 85 in^2 of return duct surface area per furnace, and if they are pulling air from the basement, then the air in the coach has to go back to the basement.

Low air flow will shut down the furnace if there is a restriction of at least 25%.
